Microsoft Teams calling devices for every user

As calls and online meetings have increased, Microsoft has worked on continually improving our features and services to help you collaborate across teams, create clarity and maintain the human connection that went from the hallways of work to digital spaces. To complement the calling experience in Teams is a robust portfolio of Teams phones designed for the places and ways you stay connected.

USB Solutions

The first USB phone certified for Microsoft Teams will be available this month, the Yealink MP50. This PC peripheral gives users a phone experience with a dial pad and handset that is plugged directly into a PC or docking station without complicated set up. While connected to Teams, the USB phone frees up your PC screen for other tasks while the device can take on the call.
